    Day 9 - Fioras

    August 24, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    The day was super easy. We got to Fioras super early and each ordered a salad. My salad would have been 18 dollars and it was as big as a Wendy’s side salad. The gig itself was kind of meh. No one really cared that we were there. It started getting cold, too.

    During break Andrew and I went next door and got some pizza. That was also meh. We went back and Andrews amp was shitting itself off. No idea why. The last set was better as there was lots of foot traffic. Most of them were drunk so they were super into it. We played some good floaters, too.

    After Doug wanted food so he found anther pizza joint. Next door was a Thai rolled ice cream place, something I’ve never heard of. It was cool because of how they make it by chopping and rolling it. Taste was meh. 0 for 3. We got back to Nicks and got to bed. It was freezing in his basement.

    Tonight we play a horse and wine festival. Should be interesting.

    Day 2 - Gig at Fioras rained out

    June 27, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Today we made the drive to the Chicago area. We met up with Nick Moss who was letting us stay with him. We got to hear his band rehearsing with their new bassist Rodrigo. We then hit the road to Geneva to set up and met with our saxophonist for this tour, Tomas from Germany.

    We set up and were told the weather looked perfect. They told us just in case we should set up their tent covering us. We sat down and ate dinner then began o play. Within the first song or so rain came down but lightly. After this we played another and Andrew had his bridge pop off the upright. By the next song we lost power in one amp and had to call it. As we were packing up a ton of water fell from the tent covering my back. Good times. First road show complete!

    After we met back at Nick’s house for bratwurst and other sides. Mark Thompson met us. He told us stories and lots of jokes. Tomorrow we head out to St. Louis for my real first road gig. This one don’t count.
